With Bruce Arena’s LA Galaxy having qualified for the MLS Cup Playoffs, the focus is on preparing for the postseason and finishing the regular season strong. That opportunity starts on Sunday, Oct. 16, when LA travel to Houston, Tex. and BBVA Compass Stadium to face Wade Barrett’s Houston Dynamo. The Dynamo are coming off a scoreless draw against the Seattle Sounders, while the Galaxy are coming off back-to-back defeats and need to get their form back to snuff. The match details, from MLSSoccer.com.

  • The Galaxy had their winless run stretched to three games, dropping a 1-0 decision to FC Dallas on Oct. 1 at Toyota Stadium. The shutout loss also snapped a string of five consecutive games having scored multiple goals.
  • The teams are meeting for a third time this season, and the Galaxy have won the first two. Giovani dos Santos scored a pair of goals and set up a third as the Galaxy claimed a 4-1 win April 15 at BBVA Compass Stadium; Steven Gerrard scored the game’s lone goal in LA’s win July 15 at StubHub Center.
  • The Galaxy win this year was their first ever at BBVA Compass Stadium. The Galaxy’s last win in Houston had come in 2010– at Robertson Stadium. The Dynamo had won four consecutive home games in the series.
  • The Galaxy have won the last two meetings at StubHub Center. Their win May 22, 2015 in Carson was LA’s first league victory against the Dynamo since May 25, 2011, ending a five-game league winless run in the series. The Dynamo had won four consecutive league meetings between the teams before a 1-1 draw March 21 in the first meeting last year.
